The Slide - Poem by Carl A.I.

I'm missing a link, and
starting to think
that I wipe my ass with
the same hand I use to feed
my children.
I slid through the drain
like the amusement of a park
and found myself below humanity
looking up as one looks to the heavens
I realized there were nothing but gods
above these sewer systems
looking down upon me
they then looked up towards their gods
who looked up towards their gods
who looked up towards their gods.....
